Grosvenor Casinos across the country are currently preparing for the 2017 Summer Sizzler poker tournament, which runs from this Wednesday 23 August until Monday 28 August. This is the second of two seasonal specials which are scheduled for this year. The first was the Easter Beast, which took place in April, and the third will be the Christmas Cracker, which is set to take place in December.

Like both the Easter Beast and the Christmas Cracker, the Summer Sizzler is a poker tournament that will be running at numerous Grosvenor Casino venues across the country, and offers a guaranteed prize pool of £20,000 per region. The direct buy-in is just £100 + £10, but players can also have a go at winning themselves a seat in the event for a tiny fraction of that by participating in online satellites.

The Summer Sizzler will be held in eight main regions, and those are Scotland, the Northeast, Yorkshire, the Northwest, the Midlands, Wales, the Southeast and the South Coast. Day 1 events will be held at multiple venues within each of those regions, making it quite easy for players to get involved without too much travelling.

For players who fare well in the Day 1 events, it will be useful to know where and when the Day 2 events will be held, so we can confirm that the Day 2 schedule is as follows:

Edinburgh on Sunday 27 August
Stockton on Monday 28 August
Leeds on Monday 28 August
Manchester BNR on Sunday 27 August
Nottingham on Monday 28 August
Cardiff on Monday 28 August
London on Monday 28 August
Portsmouth on Monday 28 August

Online satellites for the Summer Sizzler are currently taking place, and have buy-ins that give absolutely everyone a chance of winning themselves a seat. Players who get involved in the main event by whatever route, but who then crash out early, will be pleased to hear that re-entries are permitted, subject to a maximum of two per day. 

We can’t think of a better way of spending the bank holiday weekend than playing for a slice of a £20,000 prize pool, especially if the weather disappoints. If you agree, head over to Grosvenor to get involved, and good luck!
